80’s Music Rules ~ More from Retrospect CFRC-FM ~ 02-16-10

Turn the thermostat down….Ed’s show was so hot that just listening to it raised the temperature across the planet. Did you hear that? I think it was the sound of the polar icecaps melting. Either that, or it was echoes of some of the most incredible rare 80’s tunes you’ve never heard.

Be sure to tune in to Ed and his “hotter than asphalt in Florida on an August afternoon” 80’s Retrospect show on CFRC-FM from 8 pm until 10 pm on Tuesday nights. Ed takes requests by phone: (613) 533-CFRC (2372) or email: retrospectcfrc at yahoo dot ca. Indulge yourself in some “80’s Music that doesn’t suck.” I guarantee die-hard 80’s New Wave/Post-punk fans will not be disappointed.

  1. I got to see Blue Peter, National Velvet, English Beat, OMD, Luba and Nash the Slash with fm. Like a trip down memory lane!




  2. Hi, these mixes look cool, I live in the UK – would love to hear them would be good if you could do podcast so i could listen at my leisure, I tried to go to the archive but its not working so good.


  3. Hello Henry – thank you for your comment. I’m going to forward this information to Ed to see if he can give you an update on the archive situation.

    Thanks again and Cheers!


  4. Hello Henry, I am not sure issue you are having with the archives but it was working for me. As for a Pod Cast, I think it is a great idea. My only issue is time and knowledge. Work is very busy and I have no idea how to set up a Podcast. I will investigate over the next few weeks and see what I can come up with. Thanks for the feedback and cheers
